Bach, Johann Christian

Sonatas for keyboard and violin (6), op.16, WB10-15a


Lina Uinskyte (violin)
Marco Ruggeri (harpsichord)


Johann Christian Bach, youngest son of the great Johann Sebastian, is often called 'The London Bach', as he spent most of his active life in the British capital - a teacher of the Royal family, friend of the young Mozart, and very successful composer of instrumental music and Opera in Italian style.

The six sonatas for harpsichord and violin (note the order of the instruments!) are written in (pre) Classical style, full of wit, instrumental flourish and belcanto‐like melodies, no doubt inspired by the composerís operatic style.

They are played with charm, virtuosity and 'Spielfreude' by the Lithuanian‐Italian Duo Lina Uinskyte and Marco Ruggeri.

Booklet contains liner notes, biographies and information on the instruments.
